The Sparkle Effect is a non profit organization that helps build cheer and dance teams made of students with and without disabilities all over the country. Our team debuted in the 2017-18 school year and consists of Ankeny High School students in grades 8-12.
We cheer at football and basketball games and various special events as requested. Our season runs from August through February. Applications for the next school year’s squad will become available late February and will be due before spring break. Applications consist of short answer questions and must be accompanied by two teacher letters of reference.
